A video was shared on Twitter that showed Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Hollywood Star and former governor of California, was drop-kicked during an event in South Africa.
And if you have to share the video (I get it), pick a blurry one without whatever he was yelling so he doesn’t get the spotlight.
By the way… block or charge? pic.twitter.com/TEmFRCZPEA

When Arnold was having some words with his fans during a skipping competition at the Arnold Classic Africa Sporting Event, a man came running towards him and drop-kicked him from behind.
The attacked was arrested after kicking Arnold.
Even after being attacked, Arnold thanked his fans on Twitter for their concern, and added that there was “nothing to worry about”.
In the video, you could see Arnold posing for some pictures with his fans when suddenly, a man, decided to drop kick him from behind.
After being kicked, Arnold nearly falls down. The attacker was restrained by a security personnel right away.
The attacker was handed over to the police afterward.
Arnold tweeted: “I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you.”
He then said that his fans should focus on the athletes that were present in the event and forget about the attack
He said, “We have 90 sports here in South Africa at the @ArnoldSports, and 24,000 athletes of all ages and abilities inspiring all of us to get off the couch. Let’s put this spotlight on them.”
The Arnold Classic Africa Event happens every year on May and features a number of events like combat sports and bodybuilding.
